Extractive waste is produced at all stages of mining activities – during preparatory and operational works as well as in processes of mechanical processing of coal. In a significant part it comprises a fullvalue commercial product or a material for the land reclamation. Because of considerable amounts of waste generated by the coal extractive and processing industry, legal, technical, ecological and social aspects related to the possibilities of management of stored materials have been analyzed in the article.
